Fairy hotels have the ambiance you’re looking for, whether you prefer hobbits, elves or cartoon style accommodations. These are not hotels for kids but do feature exotic décor and furnishings straight out of a novel, like antique crafted furniture, Old World dining ware and beautiful hillsides. These are commonly sought out as romantic getaways and spiritual adventures, as they have minimal staff but amazing interiors.
